As talks break down Ronaldo insists on leaving Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo’s meeting with the club on Tuesday ended in failure because he requested that his contract be terminated so that he may sign with a Champions League team.
Although Ronaldo maintains that he is not for sale, Manchester United has claimed that the forward is not because they have not yet received a formal offer for his services.
Although attempts to get the 37-year-old to commit to the Red Devils failed, he is anticipated to continue working professionally.
Ronaldo was unable to go with United on their preseason tours of Thailand and Australia, respectively, but he was able to attend his team’s 4-1 triumph over Wrexham on Wednesday while receiving a medical checkup.
The famous Portuguese player is anticipated to be eligible for Sunday’s preseason match at Old Trafford against Rayo Vallecano.
While Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid appeared to openly rule themselves out this week, Chelsea had already withdrew their offer for the superstar a while back.
A banner reading “CR7 not welcome” was flown by Atletico supporters during a preseason match on Wednesday.
Ronaldo had taken a leave of absence from the club two weeks prior to handle “family difficulties,” which prompted the imposition of punishment because it was believed that by skipping the trip, he had violated his contract.
However, United CEO Richard Arnold chose not to penalize him due to the delicate reasons why he remained in Lisbon. Arnold is claimed to be “relaxed” with Ronaldo missing the full tour and is more concerned with finding a solution for the striker’s immediate future.
